Curse of the Killer Bug
"Killer bug ate my face!" "Dither and you die!" screamed the tabloid headlines in May this year. For one week the nation was terrorised by an outbreak of flesh-eating bacteria stories.
The "epidemic" of streptococcal infections started in Gloucestershire, but within days claimed victims across the country. Then suddenly there were no more reported cases and the panic was over.
Curse of the Killer Bug goes behind the headlines to examine how the superbug scare happened. Staff at Stroud and Gloucester hospitals assess the way they handled the scare, journalists describe how the story broke and the people of Stroud talk about being the focus of a world news story.
But this first programme in a new series of QED also reveals that while the headlines concentrated on these lurid cases, another deadly strain of bacteria has killed 60 people in the Midlands alone this year. Producer Linda McDougall Series producer Tim Haines

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
